Hardley intelligent by any means,if he doesn't have a written script or a teleprompter he is dead,he has average education,no leadership abilities,and hangs out with crooks,just what the NWO was looking for

After graduating high school from Punahou School in Hawaii, Barack Obama attended Occidental College for two years, then got his B.A. from Columbia University. He later got his law degree from Harvard Law School (where he became the Harvard Law Review's first african american person president), graduating magna cum laude. Obama was also a lecturer of constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School.Then he ran for president in 2008

Yea definitely average.

So when did you run the Harvard Law Review?

When did you run a fantasically run Presidential campaign beating a Clinton no less?

No leadership skills? Like running pro community organizations, or the Harvard Law review?

You hate the man, fine. You disagree with his politics fine. But if you think that he is of an average education then you have some really severe issues.

This is his Bio but no documentation for his actual works at Yale in that post exists nor any of these other claims of academic prowess! Yes, I admit I despise this man for his ideals and his administration! That still does not disqualify me from dissenting..or does it??? Last time I heard, the ability to redress government entities was still legal no matter what the Marxist/ Socialists in this government think!!!

My all time favorite clip that shows how dumb some of the voters were is where the woman thinks since Obama was elected, her gas and mortgage would be taken care of!

The worst part of the story in the origional post,is that it is plausable. There are people who believe that General Mills and General Motors are WWII army Generals. That doesn't speak well for our educational system.
Ron White says"You can't fix stupid" I am inclined to agree with him. In a Government full of shysters and shills,no one should be suprised when we get out manuvered by them. When we are fooled,it's no ones fault but our own. It's their job to fool us and keep us otherwise occupied with the mundane. Slight of hand is the politicians forte.

How can these kids have any critical thinking ability at all? They are entertained by television and a bevy of computerized toys from the youngest age. They don't even have to play with their toys, the toys play for them and they passively watch now. When was the last time you saw a kid playing with sticks and pretending they are guns, brooms or whatever. My kids used to take kitchen chairs, lay them on the side and pretend they were cars, now they have little mini motorized cars they can drive around. Imagination is the breeding ground for an inquisitive mind and parents now are more concerned with their kids toys entertaining them rather than fostering inventive play.

As kids spend more and more time in front of computers and younger and younger ages, and sitting in front of youtube videos and the garbage they pass off as television the dumming down has only begun.
...seriously? How about placing some responsibility with the parents?

As a child of the computer age (I'm 17), I can attest to the fact that it's completely possible to be an intelligent, rational person despite the modern media. I myself clock roughly 3 hours into video games and TV each day (and I admit that some of it is pretty intellectually terrible), and yet I go to a good school, pay attention and think about what I'm exposed to.

It's all in how you're brought up, or else it's all in whether the individual takes personal charge of their own life before it's too late. Yes, the environment we live in is somewhat mentally debilitating, but it's by no means fatal to your mind.

Even if this particular instance is a joke, it's an all too common occurance amongst some of our fellow citizens, and not just the young uns...

Funny, in a very sad sort of way...
